Apex really are doing their damnedest to keep us writing throughout the winter… Now that their Christmas flash contest has ended, why not have a crack at a story for their new anthology?
The anthology will be edited by Monica Valentinelli and Jaym Gates and is called Upside Down – and it’s a fascinating concept. The idea is to pick an SF/F trope (i.e. an idea that’s seen so regularly in stories as to become a lazy shorthand or even a cliché), then subvert it. A bunch of stories have already been commissioned, so check the list to make sure you don’t tread on anyone’s toes.
You don’t have long, though! The deadline is the end of December. Find out all about the anthology and submissions on the Apex website.
